It's time to be out in the garden again.
There are so many things happening out there at the moment. Bees (and cats) buzzing around the heather.
Spring flowers shyly showing their faces in the bright spring sunlight.
Lots of jobs to be done in preparation for later in the year. Things like sowing seeds and cleaning the greenhouse. The first mowing of the grass.
Indoors the first seedlings are appearing
At the top of the garden the wild garlic looks fresh and green
Nearby in the pond the frogs are doing what frogs do best at this time of year.
Yesterday Rocky brought two of his pals with him to feed at our table. Paul named him Rocky as he is a Rock Dove or 'town hall pigeon' as folk around here call them We are used to seeing wood pigeons and collard doves feeding but this is something new - these pigeons are coming up from the town centre to find rich pickings in the gardens around here. I expect the surroundings are much better than sitting under the railway bridge.
The friendly, button eyed robins who follow me to the feeders nearly every morning and sit as close as they can when I put out their food are nesting in a bush quite close to the kitchen window so we've been watching them from the kitchen sink flitting in and out of the branches with bits of grass, twigs and other materials.
